On the 8th of May, 1972, Father Stefano Gobbi, a priest from Milan, Italy, was taking part in a pilgrimage to Fatima. While praying in the Chapel of the Apparitions for some priests, an interior voice urged Fr. Gobbi to have confidence in the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Mary began to make use of Fr. Gobbi to gather all priests who would accept her invitation to consecrate themselves to her Immaculate Heart, to be strongly united to the Pope and to the Church in union with him, and to bring the faithful into the secure refuge of her motherly Heart.
The worldwide membership of the M.M.P. now numbers at least 400 cardinals and bishops, more than 100,000 priests, and millions of religious and faithful around the world.
In the United States the Marian Movement of Priests was initiated in 1975.
Pray with our Cenacle on THU at 4:00 PM in St. Cecilia Church.
